Miserable Stoat Loses In Straight Sets



Despite beating the unlovely Spaniard Nadal (get some sleeves, por favor) the uber unnlovely Andrew Murray lost most convincingly against the ever sportsmanlike Roger Federer. Well done Roger, five-in-a-row winner of the US Open Men's Singles Championships.
Murray has allegedly made it quite clear that he values winning the US Open above Wimbledon (must be the All-England bit), is Scottish first before British and has no regard for England. So why on earth do the BBC persist in their attempt to get English people to support him? He will never match the affection that Jeremy Bates and Tim Henman stirred in the hearts of English tennis fans. We knew deep down they wouldn't win yet their annual ephemeral successes followed by depressing failures on the holy sward of SW19 accorded them champion status in the English pantheon of decent chaps who tried hard but were never quite good enough on the day.

Do correct me if I am wrong, but I believe that in an earlier post you stated you originated from Salford, an adjacent city unfairly overshadowed by Manchester. The first street in the world lit by gas was Church Street in Salford, for example.
I have noted your comments with interest.

Hope this helps. You will be able to locate the area via Google Earth as well. Interesting ancestors. Please let me know when you have posted about them on your blog so I can cross link.
